Readership: Undergraduate scholars of any self-discipline drawn to enhancing their visible figuring out in geometry.
- Engages the scholar in hands-on actions utilizing compass, straightedge, and protractor. In conversing approximately components and vectors, geoboards are used. a huge fractal wallhanging is developed utilizing the iterative functionality process. Compass and straightedge is used to create fantastic patterns
- There are many novel issues now not lined in different books on geometry similar to logarithmic spirals, Voronoi domain names with program to trend popularity, parallel traces with software to bracing a framework, fractals, kaleidocopes, an advent to crew theory
- Projective geometry is brought at a confident point. the scholar is engaged in conducting thirteen basic structures of projective geometry. by means of targeting projective geometry, the homes of Euclidean geometry turn into extra comprehensible — together with the character of infinity and the which means of parallel lines

Originating with Andreas Floer within the Eighties, Floer homology has proved to be an efficient instrument in tackling many very important difficulties in 3- and 4-dimensional geometry and topology. This 2007 ebook presents a finished therapy of Floer homology, according to the Seiberg–Witten monopole equations.
The improvement of geometry from Euclid to Euler to Lobachevsky, Bolyai, Gauss and Riemann is a narrative that's frequently damaged into elements – axiomatic geometry, non-Euclidean geometry and differential geometry. This poses an issue for undergraduates: Which half is geometry? what's the enormous photograph to which those components belong?
The research of triangulations of topological areas has regularly been on the root of geometric topology. one of the so much studied triangulations are piecewise linear triangulations of high-dimensional topological manifolds. Their examine culminated within the overdue 1960s–early Nineteen Seventies in an entire class within the paintings of Kirby and Siebenmann.
